Ubisoft has revealed the roadmap for Assassin's Creed Valhalla content slated to roll out through the rest of the year.

At the top of the list is the new title update which will bring the game to 1.4.0. It launches tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 9, and ships alongside a new free exploration feature called Tombs of the Fallen. According to the verified Assassin's Creed Twitter account, the update will also ship with a few "game improvements," new skills for Eivor, and the groundwork for the latest in-game festival: Oskoreia.

Below, we've explained everything we know about each piece going forward.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Roadmap Revealed

As stated on the Ubisoft website, Tombs of the Fallen is a puzzle-based exploration feature that sends players deep "into vast, hidden subterranean caverns." Each tomb will be filled with "tales of mystery, history," and, of course, a trove of loot to make the whole process worth it. Players will need to rely on their wits and Eivor's parkour skills to evade traps, poison, and other deadly obstacles in their search for treasure.

"Scattered across England, these sprawling dungeons will be available from the moment you unlock your settlement, with no other prerequisites needed besides your ability to track them all down," the website reads.

All four Tombs will be available to explore once the title update commences. It comes with two achievements: Spelunker and Cryptologist.

The Oskoreia Festival ends the harvest season and begins Odin's Wild Hunt across the sky. In AC: V, the spirits of the dead will rise specifically to raze the living—whom Eivor will need to defend. It will run from Nov. 11 through to Dec. 2.

'In this free, limited-time event, you'll find new activities and quests, and a peculiar new stranger, all to reap a wealth of rewards," the website claims.

There will be three events for players to enjoy: "archery, horseback riding, and a new tournament against spirits." A seasonal quest will also be available for those brave enough to uncover an ancient warrior's mystery.

Players who want to take part in the festivities will need to have a Settlement of at least level two and have completed the narrative arcs in Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire.
